Implied term

implied term: a term in a contract that it not expressly agreed when the contract is formed, but is nevertheless a term of the contract due to custom or usage, the parties’ prior course of dealings, the intention of the parties or by reason of statute (for eg. terms implied into consumer contracts by the Consumer Rights Act 2015); breach of contract disputes often arise in relation to a term said to be implied by the intention of the parties, but courts will not imply terms in fact easily and a strict set of criteria must be met, including the party arguing for the implied term being able to show that the implied term would not contradict any of the express clauses in the contract.
